Cartoon Network to Teach Bullied Boys to Go ‘Commando’? NY Post

The Cartoon Network is casting for a potential reality show pilot that will teach boys ages 13 to 16 "to plan and execute real life missions," the New York Post reports.

In the series, called "Going Commando," a team of former special forces soldiers will run kids through boot camp “where you will transform from scrawny to superhero," and learn night vision, hydro reconnaissance, rappelling, and use of high-tech equipment in problem-solving, according to a casting notice quoted by the Post.

The producers want to cast kids who are dealing with issues such as being picked on by bullies or trying to get back borrowed property.

The network confirmed to the paper that the show is in early stages of development.
